Aberdeen is an electric city that boasts a lively social scene, culture and a rich history. The city of Aberdeen is home to the famous Union Street, which is packed with shops and restaurants. There is plenty of activities for students to do whilst living in Aberdeen, from visiting its many national parks to discovering the rich history at one of the museums.
Our student accommodation Powis Place, is located in close proximity to The University of Aberdeen which is just a short 15 minute walk from the accommodation. At Powis Place you can have the choice to either share a flat with your friends or have a studio all to yourself.
With bus stops conveniently located outside Powis Place, the city’s universities and colleges are easily accessible, including University of Aberdeen, Robert Gordon University and North East College (NESCOL). The walk into the hustle and bustle of the city centre takes only 10 minutes on foot. Head to George’s Street and you will find Bon Accord and St Nicholas Shopping Centre, one of the largest of its kind in the city, home to the likes of Topshop, Next, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer.
Whatever kind of night out you prefer, Union Street ticks every box and is just a short stroll or two-minute taxi journey from Powis Place. Elsewhere The Bobbin, situated next to the University of Aberdeen’s Kings College campus, is a big favourite amongst students, as is Triple Kirks, at the end of Belmont Street.
If you want to check out the attractions in the ‘Granite City’, don’t miss Balmoral Castle, the summer residence of the British Royal Family.
